Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Thrill Mom with a gift she’ll use and love all year — long after the flowers have dried and the candy has been eaten. Here at Connecting Point, we have a few recommendations we’d like to share. (Also, we’re open every day, including Sunday — Mother’s Day itself — so we’ve got you covered.)
Red Planet SubSonic Bluetooth speaker
Do you know what 60 Hertz feels like?
Mom’s mouth will drop when she listens to the big sound coming out of this diminutive speaker. Few pocket-size Bluetooth speakers can produce 60Hz bass, the kind of bass you feel as well as hear — but the SubSonic can. It even doubles as a hands-free speakerphone. And to make it sound even sweeter, we’re shaving 10 bucks off the regular price!
